PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILM, (ARK.) COUHICT NEWS AUGUST ', Th» World Today: Sub* mnd Atomic future— Atom Isn't Developed To Replace Oil, Coal To Water Tomorrow By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON. Aug. 22. <fl'>— The Navy created a sensation In announcing yesterday tha.t !t has arranged to build n submarine drlv- _en by atomic power. But this dofrsnt mean we've advanced so far in development" of atomic energy that we'll be using It the day after tomorrow in American industry instead of oil and coal and water. Side dy side with Its main Job of producing atomic weapons the Atomic Energy Commission learns i nnd develops oilier uses for (he atom and It has made tMs niuch progress to date: • Right now it can tise atomic energy lo provide industrial power. The fact that the atomic submarine is to "ie built is proof of thac. But the main point is this: AEC still hasn't found n way to provide atomic sneipv for industry so cheaply tl*at industry woi-H drop the usual roal-elpctrlc-Vnl f- power it's using now. Deans Usts Rrnson* Recently the chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, Gordon E. Dean, said that in his opinion the use of atomic energy in industry Is still a good way off And he gave some reasons for say- ine; so: 1. There arc technical difficulties which must 'first be overcome. 2. There's no Immediate Indus-' trial need for atomic energy since we're still so well supplied with the usual kind. 3. Defense needs for atomic energy are ^ttll greater than tho commercial needs of industry, nnd therefore need more work and attention now. Last July the AEG .said work was being done on atomic energy for driving submarines and planes. It seems plain now. from the Navy's announcement, that work on the submarine has outstripped work on the plane. This may explain some of the problems ahead for Industry: In making atomic weapons the government needs plutonium Roughly, It gets the plutonium this way: , Natural uranium Is dumped into a reactor (call It an engine! The uranium contains two kind." of atoms, 235 and 238. The 235's keep hopping Around nnd hit the 238's. This results In changes which produce the needed plutonium. The Question IB the atomic age. « Pour groups of big companies, chemical and electric power companies, recently made a deal with AEC: They'll send their technicians, after they've been well-checked by the FBI, Into the commission's plants to study the reactors, or engines, at work in producing Plutonium. Pliin Is Sought The purpose: to see If they can come up with a plan by which rivatc Industry could produce phi- onlum lor the government find at same time use that tremendous •fey. resulting from the manu- ncturc of plutonium, for supplying uiustry with power. If they do produce a plan, and should take al a year the KG will lift-'c to study It. And ongrewi ivJII almost certainly have i approve before private Industry allowed inio this field When Lie time come.s tor .such decision, there probably will be long and bit for fight—no one s predicting the outcome—over this uestion: Should private firms be allowed i me atomic energy,' developed by IP government at the expense of !ie taxpayers, for private profit? Or should the government Itself tep into the Industrial power field n the grounds that atomic energy public property? . needs. Po the question Flow cjm this hent be u,s£d foi t!ie benefit of Industry by providing power to turn the wheels of In dustry. For instance, how can th> heat be turned Into steam for drlv iii. engine turbines? "'When the solution U found—tha, Is. when industry can USB thl atomic energy at cost cheaper thnn its present means of power—w •hall have moved far forward Ln Reds Losing U.S. Members Hoover Reportt Drop In Year WASHINGTON, Alls. 22.

The pin was shifted by umpires controlling tb« 100.000-man maneuver and took away elements of the Ninth Air forces' 137th Fighter Bomber wing, of Alexandria, La., and the 140th Fighter Bomber Wing, a former Air National Guard unit from Denver, Colo., and transferred them to U. 8. forces. Both the 137th, which flies the speedy F-84 Jets and the 140th, equipped with conventional type F- 51 Mustangs, are now based at Wilmington, Thus, two U. 8. Army divisions, the 38th and the 43rd, found the tide shifting in their favor after two days of reverses, that forced them to withdraw about 10 mites. orce.

The break came yesterday when James H. Audettc, a convict who ed the prisoners' grievance committee, assured the warden that &0 cent of the men would be back on the Job today. The prisoners appear to have won j several major concessions with their strike: 1. The guard who they accuse of bruttillty will be disciplined. 2. They won the promise of an investigation. 3. They were assured that Warden Alexander will be replaced. Earlier Alexander took the side of guard LI. Morris Race in his use of a club to stop the fight. But yesterday Alexander announced he would discipline Race even before the investigation was completed The prisoners want Race transfer- The reserves which are still con tinuing today, enabled the two former National Guard units to gain valuable training under realistic battle conditions and without the benefit of a dominating air red outside the walls and Alexander said he might do that,. sujru were pointing to a 'The Norn*' SINGAPORE m — They called him "The Name" aboard the French liner "Andre Lebon."

It's the new Btiick SPECIAL 2-door, 6-passcngcr Sedan — and it's roomier thnn most 4-cloor sedans, higher- powered than many costlier cars—and priced, as you can see, right down near the lowest. Now, we ask you: where can you beat it for the money? Can you heal this beauty on looks and style and rich bearing in any other car near its price? Can you match, nt the same money, the big power of its valve-in-head Fireball Engine (128 horsepower with Dynaflow Drive*) —or the big milcs-pcr-gallon figure it delivers with such thrills? Can you equal this traveler's roominess in any other car of comparabje cost—get full-si/.e headroom, legroom and hiproom both front and rear in any other 2-door automobile? Can you come even near the gentle levelness of its ride and the solid steadiness of its going —have coil springs on all four wheels and a tortjiie-tube keel beneath you—except in another Btiick? And where can you top the restful ease and luxurious smoothness of this sweetheart's Dynaflow Drive* in any other automobile at any price? The answers, from a lot of certain- sure folks, sum up to a great big, "YOU CANT!" But why take anyone else's word for it? Come in and get your own answers.
